MAGIC LANTERN The Redwood City Improvement Association wanted to create an evening attraction to bring more visitors to the downtown area. To implement a projection mapping show downtown, the RCIA partnered with the Fox Theatre to house the projectors and media server system, the San Mateo County History Museum to act as the weekly projection screen, former local AV company Tekamaki to design and install the video system, Bart Kresa to design the content, and Fresh AV to design and install the audio system.
For the last three years, The Magic Lantern show has been a huge success in bringing more foot traffic to the downtown area. This year, to celebrate Redwood City's 150th Anniversary, the content featured 150 years of Redwood City history.
Fresh AV has since taken over the management, operation and maintenance of the media server and projection aspects of this show. The Magic Lantern show can be viewed from Courthouse Square in Downtown Redwood City, CA on Tuesday nights between April and November.
